    Wait. What? What does that even mean? It means that we're headed back to Disney, and in my excitement to find dates that worked for the entire family, it didn't even occur to me that our trip would overlap with our 13th wedding anniversary. So, not only do I get to plan another wonderful...

    Best Spot on Monorail Loop for Family Photo

    My family will be celebrating my MIL's 70th Birthday this summer. One of the few things she's asked for is a nice family photo of all 10 of us. We have dinner ADR's at The Wave and dessert at Cali Grill on the big day. Is there a particular spot at The Contemporary or another monorail resort...

    I was in my local Disney Outlet store this afternoon with my son and my mother-in-law, adding to my son's lightsaber collection :-) He was VERY excited about his new Kylo Ren saber and couldn't wait to try it out. Lucky for him, the CM was up to the challenge! This guy made our day!

    Golden Oak Outpost - No more sweet potato nuggets?

    I just noticed a menu change, and sweet potato nuggets did not make the cut. It's waffle fries all day :-( I know it's just a little seasonal kiosk, but I loved me some nuggets. Sadness

    Can I make plans for kids on a family member's MDE account?

    Here's my situation: I will be traveling with a party of 10 this summer, 4 of which are kids. Two are mine and the other two are my nieces. All the adults with MDE accounts are "friends" with access to each other's plans. We know how to make joint and separate plans for each other, but what...

    7D Mine Train or Princess Fairytale Hall?

    Which one does the rope-drop crowd head for first? We've got 8:05 breakfast ADR's for BOG, so we'll be in a great position to head off the pack, but where to go first? Both kids want to ride 7DMT & my daughter is eager to meet A&E. Am I a fool to think we'll be able to both before the lines...

    Can't get my ADR :-( and nobody understands but you

    I was up at the crack of dawn on day 180 but the only time available for Be Our Guest was 8:55pm. Waaaaaaahhhhhhhhh! We're not doing the dining plan, so only doing a few special meals in the parks. I got Akershus breakfast with no problem, but BOG has broken my little Disney-loving heart...

    The "Skip It" List

    It starts at the airport as you're waiting for your return flight to depart. You're sharing your favorite moments, and someone says "Disney World was great, but next time, i'd do things a little differently..." We're planning a visit next spring, but there's a few things we just gonna skip...

    Is it time for a lineup change at Akershus?

    I was just thinking... or perhaps hoping... shouldn't Anna and Elsa be added to the princess lineup at Akershus? I realize the movie just came out, but it's got to be the plan, right? Norway is the present "home" they've been given and their M&G is so popular, it's probably easier to see the Pope.

    Looking for the truth about Value Resorts

    OK, so, I've only been to Disney once. We stayed at POFQ and absolutely loved it! Since it's never too soon to start planning, I'm starting to narrow down options for our next trip...in May of 2015 :-). Anyway, a recent trip report has me almost sold on AoA, but I hesitate because of one...
